Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” ascends to No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Pop Airplay chart (dated April 20).

The song marks multiple firsts, including Boone’s initial leader on any Billboard airplay survey.


Plus, with the track on Night Street/Warner Records, Warner has promoted two consecutive Adult Pop Airplay No. 1s for the first time, as “Beautiful Things” supplants Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control,” on SWIMS Int./Warner, after four weeks at the summit.

Additionally, with “Beautiful Things” at No. 1 and “Lose Control” at No. 2, Warner boasts the to two titles on Adult Pop Airplay simultaneously for the time.

(The Adult Pop Airplay chart, which began in Billboard’s pages in March 1996, ranks songs by weekly plays on 80 adult top 40 radio stations monitored by Mediabase, with data provided to Billboard by Luminate.)

The Adult Pop Airplay coronation for “Beautiful Things” is the song’s latest chart feat. It has ruled the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart for seven weeks and the Billboard Global 200 for six frames (through charts dated April 13). On the Billboard Hot 100, it has reached a No. 2 high. It concurrently climbs to No. 3 on Pop Airplay.

Boone previously charted two songs on Adult Pop Airplay: “Ghost Town” moseyed to No. 12 in February 2022 and “In the Stars” reached No. 24 in September 2023.

“Beautiful Things,” which Boone co-wrote, is on his debut LP, Fireworks & Rollerblades, released April 5.

“My two other songs that have done well, I wasn’t prepared for them,” the Washington native, who claims 6.8 million TikTok followers, recently told Billboard. “I teased them without even having the song[s] fully ready. So much happened so fast, and looking back, I could’ve done a lot better at keeping that moment [going]. But this one, I’m ready. I’ve been ready for this one.”

All Billboard charts dated April 20 will update Tuesday, April 16, on Billboard.com.
